Following on from Ken Restivo's amazing work getting RT linux
working on the eeepc, I decided to have a go. I am using a 701,
which I have slightly overclocked using the eee.ko module
(required on my eee to boost voltage to get SD cards working
reliably YMMV).


I patched the latest kernel with the rt11 patch, and
just built it...

Running Jack with qjackctl, I can set periods to 128, full
duplex, 44100 and get no xruns. I have to set prio to 89, and
force 16 bit. Importantly, I also have to kill NetworkManager and
NetworkManagerD or I get xruns. With all this, it seems really
solid. I am running ardour with no problems.. 6 individually
recorded tracks writing to the SD card seems to work fine.
